A Look Back in Time: Jan. 11, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Jan. 11, 1919.

It took a jury in district court an hour this morning to reach a verdict that two men were guilty of aggravated assault against J.A. Cross, ranchman. Maximum penalty for the crime is $1,000 fine or a year in jail.

Fire consumed a quantity of hay in a barn at the corner of Third and Val Vista at 5:45 last night. It's estimated that the loss may reach somewhere around $100.

Fred W. Decker is organizing the Decker Concert Orchestra in Sheridan. The orchestra will make its initial appearance before the Woman's club on Jan. 24 at the Linden auditorium, with a program on Italian music.
